November 14, 1967 – February 24, 2016

Born in Kansas City, Missouri, and known as Bart to his family, on arrival in San Francisco in 1983, he adopted the nickname Sunny. He passed away at Maitri Compassionate Care after a valiant battle against cancer, after having survived AIDS. He was an incredibly talented artist, producing mixed media paintings of foils, films, and resins. He was generous to everyone, sharing what he could with those without. He loved animals and volunteered for Animal Care and Control. He also volunteered, until he became too ill, at the syringe access services program, serving as a peer outreach worker.

He is survived by his partner of 17 years, Gary; his mother, Becky; and sister, Darren; his ex-partner, Bob; his three cats, and all his friends. We all miss him terribly.

A memorial celebrating his life will be held at the Circle of Friends at the National AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park Saturday, April 2, at 1 p.m.

Please make donations to the San Francisco SPCA in memory of G.B. "Sunny" Fisher.
